On Wednesday 8th October while we were at Italian our teacher, Miss Dickson left our classroom to go over to the school office. Miss Dickson stopped and looked carefully around as she could hear some loud chirping noise. Miss Dickson was shocked to find a Mother Duck and her ducklings right outside of our classroom.
The Mother Duck wanted her ducklings to hop up into he garden bed but it was too tall for them. Miss Dickson and Miss King helped relocate the ducks to a safer place.
The next day we created our own narratives about the ducks visit.
Below is Theresa’s narrative about the adventures the ducklings had at our school.
The Missing Duck
On Tuesday morning, waking up to find her daughter missing was NOT a good start to the day. Mother Duck soon realised that her youngest duckling, Sam was missing. She immediately alerted her husband. “SAM’S MISSING!” She screamed. Her husband woke up with a start. “We must find her” said father duck. So the parents woke up the other children, had breakfast and the adventure started.
“Are we there yet?” cried Danni. “Why do we have to find Sam? She’s so ugly and useless.” said Owen. “How dare you say that?” Father duck scolded Owen. They walked everywhere but still couldn’t find Sam. They sneaked up onto a bus and when they got off, they saw this giant building. “John, we should explore here. Sam loves big places.” Melissa said to her husband. So they set off. They crawled under the gates and saw the biggest garden bed. They went to explore. Then a really big person appeared. She spotted them and walked towards them. “What should we do?” cries Melissa. The ducklings were screaming.
She got the big square thing and it made some click sounds. They tried to jump onto the garden bed but the little ones couldn’t jump on. The big person finally walked away. ”Phew” sighed the ducks. “It’s not safe here” said John. So everyone went away. It was getting dark and Melissa started to worry. “Where could she be?” she thought. They created some shelter for the night, had some dinner and slept.
The next day, they went to dive in the water. “Sam knows how to swim, so this is a good place to start.” said John. They searched all day but didn’t find anything. They soon gave up and went home. They found Sam there. She had gone to her friend’s house. They were happy she was safe and sound and lived happily ever after.
